Looking thru a windowing an awakening...thanks HP

Today while I was cooking dinner, I heard someone outside screaing, "Help me!" I had no idea what was going on, but walked outside. I went outside and could hear it coming from the house across the street...so I started to walk that way. As I did, the woman and her child came out and she was crying - a man was following her. I asked her if she was ok, and she said no he had hurt her. I told her to come over and wait here. He started to yelling that he just wanted his keys, that he didn't do anything to her. I told him that I don't what happened, but that he needed to wait there for the police. She was standing outside my house balling, with her 3rd grade son...he look bewildered. BLEW ME AWAY........seeing this from this side woke up an awareness of my past and what could have been my future. That poor boys face broke my heart. Well, this made me very upset...brought me to tears for myself and my children. In that moment, I realized that I could have been her, my kids had heard this before...and I'm sure felt what that child and she did. Talk about an eye opener. Now to finish this...Ah showed up shortly after this happened, and he was here when the police shoed up for a statement of what I heard/saw. He asked if I was ok, and I said ya, but inside I was falling apart so I asked him something about what I had told him happened. And he pretty much condemned that guys behavior, and I was SO upset with him. I said that could have been me and you, I just never called 911. He said that's different, I said how...he go really, really mad...and asked if he was supposed to leave. I said just think about it?? He got mad....left, still made....blaming me for ruining his time w/ his kids. I knew I shouldn't go there with him, because he can't see it or accept his actions....but I was so floored by the awareness of all. I consider this a gift from HP letting me see that what I am doing is protecting my children from what I saw from a very different perspective this evening

Freeing, this could still happen to you and your children.

Just because you and your husband are not living under the same roof doesn't mean that any sort of domestic violence will not be inflicted on you/children in future. the fact that he can blow at a moments notice is frightening. Are his visits with your children always supervised?

freeing,

I think my comment has likely come across rather harshly.

What I should have added yesterday is that you have made great strides the past weeks and you definitely had a light bulb moment. Wishing you the best.

this brings me to tears. Thanks for sharing and being there to help that woman and her son. They will never forget the comfort you brought them just by being there.
